Value of further research on IVIG for severe sepsis/septic shock: population EVPI estimates (WTP = £20,000), according to alternative synthesis models of effectiveness evidence (see Table2for detailed specification of the models)
Scenarios for alternative synthesis models of effectiveness evidence
EVPI per patient
Population EVPI ( Time horizon = 10 years)
EVPI evaluates the expected cost of current uncertainty by accounting both for the probability that a decision based on existing evidence is wrong and for the magnitude of the consequences of making the wrong decisions. EVPI, expected value of perfect information.
